Seems to me I haven't posted in almost a week. Maybe more.
I'm not totally sure of all the reasons why, but it does have to do with a multitude of tasks demanded by increased activity involving the kids hockey team. Games in and out of town. Practices. The articles needing to be written that go along with it. Catching up on the website and keeping it up to date has also commanded a certain amount of what used to be my free time for myself.
Work has also changed somewhat - I am receiving my fair share of daytime shifts on a steady basis, as opposed to rotating weeks of opposite shifts. Hitting the sack soon as games are over for the sake of getting up at 4 a.m. have also robbed me of what used to be spare time.
And then there is burnout!
There surely has been lots to write about and comment on from other blogs. There hasn't been an absense of subject matter to be sure but rather an upswing in the number of interesting things I want to get into. While the Leafs and Sens fortunes have turned lately, the Habs roll along precariously. I just finished a great book on Alan Eagleson and would love to quote a dozen passages. Malkin's debut, Clarke's resignation, and Chicago's fall of luck are all tempting - but how does one keep up?
There is also boredom. With myself! The need to reinvent and rediscover writting passions. Finding the creative juices are just not up to snuff when I want them to be.
I haven't even found an interest in checking out any others blogs in the last while. I have checked my mail on occasion without being too inspired. For whatever reason, the replies just aren't there for now.
It all adds up to the need for a siesta.
How long I'll be away remains to be seen. I actually thought of just calling it a day. I still might.
In the event I do blogoff, my friends, it has been nice!
